Rangers could be set for significant financial windfall on Robby McCrorie as Manchester United transfer news emerge
Manchester United are reportedly one of three clubs “on the trail” of Rangers keeper Robby McCrorie ahead of a possible Ibrox exit and the Gers could be set to receive another healthy windfall.
According to Mail Plus (11 August), the Premier League giants are joined by Hull and Polish champions Rakow Czestochowa in battling for the 25-year-old who is “unsettled” at Rangers and “eager to start afresh away from Ibrox”.
The Light Blues reportedly want as much as £1million to sell McCrorie, with his first-team opportunities now increasingly limited at Ibrox following the signing of Jack Butland.
Herald Scotland also reported on Friday that Manchester United could well firm up their interest in McCrorie should Nottingham Forest re-sign Dean Henderson who is back at Old Trafford following his loan spell at the City Ground last season.
And it is understood that Rangers won’t stand in McCrorie’s way regarding a possible exit.
A number of players have already left Rangers this summer, with the likes of Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos, Antonio Colak, Allan McGregor and Fashion Sakala being among the noteworthy ones, for which the Gers have received healthy sums or experienced a huge weight off their financial shoulders in terms of wages.
McCrorie is certainly likely to be the next Rangers exit this summer following his limited opportunities and the amount of interest in the young goalkeeper could certainly allow the Gers to drive up the price a little.
Rangers are looking for a seven-figure fee and United should have no problem in shelling out that kind of money to secure his services.
It remains to be seen whether the Premier League giants will follow up their interest with a formal bid but what is certain, the Gers are set to receive another significant financial in their bank.
And with Beale admitting (Daily Record, 12 August) that he possibly needs another attacker to bolster his ranks this season while the Gers will also be in the market for defensive reinforcements at left-back and centre-back, that £1m from McCrorie’s sale coupled with the windfall they received from Sakala, could prove incredibly useful in those market ambitions.
Rangers have been incredibly effective in their transfer business this summer, but there still remains a few players on their books that don’t feature in Beale’s plans and those futures certainly need to be sorted out quickly, especially the “unsettled” McCrorie.
